Thanks for all of this. I feel a shopping spree coming on :-(

Do you know of any one that still makes or can supply any of these bits and pieces Hopefully someone will have a bin full of this stuf somewhere?

I'd welcome a private chate / PM from anyone that can help out.

Thanks
Russell

I think you will find that the wiper motor/clamp/tubes and wheelboxes is a standard buy, as a kit, from Car Builder Solutions (CBS)

I have a boot lock with keys (as shown in the picture) still in the packet from DNA, that I didn't use...not sure how much it's worth (its probably from CBS as well so you could probably find the price of it on there)

I also have a hydro chromed replica 3d printed boot handle with fitted fake lock... and a 3d printed boot handle with no lock (the latter I bought as a spare before I forked out for a "real" one (a whopping £355 by the way!!)....both for sale....however please bear in mind that, should you wish to make an offer, for the bare 3d print alone I paid Brian £60...the lock in the chrome one cost me £25, plus chroming on top...so my (not very subtle) point is that this stuff ain't cheap!

I don't want to make money on anything...just somewhere near to what I paid for them.

Count Arthur Strong once sagely said about the programme "Wheeler Dealers" ;

"Its a telly programme where they buy cars, spend a fortune doing them up, and then celebrate selling them for slightly less than they paid for them in the first place"

Thanks for the offer Sir Percival but one thing that I do have is the boot lock and the door handles.

I'll get in touch with CBS and see what they can do to help.

Another thing that I've realised that I'm mising is the front radiator grill. Any thoughts on where to get one of these?

Thanks again Sir Percival,
I found this item on CBS
https://www.carbuilder.com/uk/windscreen-wiper-kit
Does anyone know which sweep angle is required as there is a choice of six.

Obviously I want the right angle but maybe not one that is a right angle... :-)
